Call for Papers (deadline: 10th of June):

GCB 2017 invites the submission of papers on all aspects of bioinformatics by 10th of June 2017 (11:59 p.m. MESZ). Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Novel algorithmic methods for bioinformatics
Novel machine learning methods for bioinformatics
Methods for genomics and metagenomics
Methods for transcriptomics and metatranscriptomics
Computational proteomics and metabolomics
Microbial and viral bioinformatics
Computational systems biology
Translational bioinformatics
Structural bioinformatics
Visual analytics for the life sciences

Novel, unpublished work can be submitted as a paper to the GCB.
The submissions will be peer-reviewed by the program committee and judged by quality, originality and relevance. Proceedings papers have to be submitted via EasyChair and should not exceed 10 pages using the provided template. They will be published with PeerJ as a special collection (indexed in PubMed and Web of Science).

Important: Accepted proceedings papers are published as a preprint collection. It will be visible that they were accepted to and presented at GCB2017. Most journals allow submission of research that is already published as a preprint. Information about this can be found here:

Submission Policies and Ethics Guidelines

At least one author of an accepted submission must attend the conference to present the work. To avoid potential conflicts of interest when assigning reviewers, the complete list of authors must be provided when submitting your manuscript. Adding additional authors after the submission deadline will not be permitted.

All submissions will be treated as confidential communications during the review process, so a submission does not constitute public disclosure of any ideas therein. Submissions should contain no information or materials that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication (at the conference), and should cite no publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.

Any use of copyrighted material and devices of proprietary nature will be the responsibility of the presenters.
